Praise for each volume:
Essentials of Jewish History
An essential reference for every home, and worthwhile cover-to-cover reading for more serious students. This book is a remarkable tour de force, spanning the breadth of four millennia of Jewish history with encyclopedic clarity. Marlon’s fascinating perspective traces unlikely continuities and discontinuities.... I think my copy will be well-worn by the time I’m done with it.

Essentials of the Land of Israel
A comprehensive, one-volume introduction to the geography of the Land – biblical and modern.... Essentials of the Land of Israel is an essential guide to readers of the Bible who wish to understand its geographical background, and to those planning a visit to the Land itself.
